And Now, Most Underrated Law Schools

Just in time for this week's anticipated release of the U.S. News & World Report rankings of the nation's best law schools, Vault has released its list of the 25 most underrated law schools. Vault bases the rankings on the votes of 512 legal recruiting professionals, including law firm recruiting managers, law firm hiring partners and corporate counsel. They were asked to name law schools that, based on their experience as hiring managers, are underrated. I won't steal Vault's thunder by reproducing the entire list here, but the top 10 most underrated law schools are:

  1. Emory University School of Law
  2. Fordham University School of Law
  3. Howard University School of Law
  4. Chicago-Kent College of Law
  5. University of Oregon School of Law
  6. George Mason University School of Law
  7. University of Illinois College of Law
  8. William and Mary Law School
  9. Vanderbilt University Law School
  10. University of Georgia School of Law

My law school, Boston College, showed up on the list as No. 15, with the comment that it is "smarter than is ranked." Funny, people often say that about me, as well.
